Ella Watts wants her old life back. Desperately. But the past has returned for
its rematch, and going back home—even telling anyone her real name—isn’t an
option until she’s confident in her MMA abilities. Personal trainer Lance Black
is the man to help her reach her goals. Not only is he toned, muscular, and
gorgeous, he’s patient, a great teacher, and willing to treat her like a worthy
opponent. Except his size makes her freeze whenever he gets too close. If Ella
can’t learn how to overcome her fear of being attacked, she’ll never be able to
move on with her life.
fighter Lance Black knows there’s more to the mysterious blonde ninja than a
beautiful woman determined to improve her fighting skills. She can best anyone
close to her size – man or woman – but insists on working out with him, even
though he’s got a good 70 pounds and several inches on her. Despite her
reticence, he’s determined to get her to open up so he can help her get over
her mental block. And if that means he can get to know her outside the gym, all
as she never learns his secrets.
